topical OF THE MONTH
TOPICAL GEL SUNSET CONNECT One of the major challenges when it comes to shopping for topicals is distinguishing items one might consider a luxury from those that are best classified as essential. To say nothing negative of today’s offerings of bath bombs, infused soaking salts and items of that nature, they are, it must be noted, unlikely to be utilized on an everyday basis.
1:1 RATIO; 450-500MG CANNABINOIDS TOTAL
Like a bolt of healing light shot straight into your skin.
The same cannot be said for Sunset Connect’s new fast-acting, Cannabis-infused gel. Far from being a treat to be savored on a special occasion, this potent new offering from the San Francisco equity-owned operation is an item you’ll want to work into your normal routine in a hurry. So, what’s the appeal? First off, Sunset Connect knows the value of not skimping on THC. Whereas some topicals tend to favor a more balanced recipe, this gel strives for high potency with a 1:1 THC to CBD ratio. Packed with 450 to 500mg of cannabinoids in each can, this gel features a formula that ensures you are getting your money’s worth. And on top of that, your money is also going to a great cause. As an equity-owned business, Sunset Connect and its founder, Ali Jamalian, are all about helping others and giving back to their local San Francisco community. Naturally, a great backstory only goes so far if the product doesn’t shine. Fortunately, Sunset Connect’s fast-acting gel is like a bolt of healing light shot straight into your skin. Ingenuously dispersed via what can be best described as a shaving cream can, the substance is likewise the consistency and color of a blue shaving gel. Utilizing a base formula that includes organic aloe vera, arnica and menthol crystals, the soothing aroma and effects felt from rubbing a generous dab of this gel onto a forearm or cranky neck are instantly noticeable. As an added bonus, Sunset Connect’s gel also relies on meadowfoam seed oil, which results in speedy absorption through the skin without the delays of a lipid-based solution. A topical you’ll want in your kitbag at all times, this gel makes a case for the title of “cream of the crop.”
